Top attractions in Lazienki Park
Although visitors can easily find impressive sights throughout Lazienki Park, a few attractions stand out from the rest:
The Palace on the Water
Formerly a residence of the King of Poland, the Palace on the Water sits atop an artificial island, which is connected to the land by two bridges. The palace combines several architectural styles, including Chinese and Classical, and features many statues of mythological creatures. Inside, guests will find the Royal Baths and statues of great Polish kings.
Stone figures guard the walls of Lazienki Park's classic Roman style amphitheatre. The amphitheatre has a twist, though - the actual theatre stage is separated from the seating by a small moat. Visitors may be lucky enough to catch a performance too, as shows are still occasionally performed here.
The Old and New Orangery
Lazienki Park's indoor tropical gardens can be found in the New Orangery, originally built for Alexander II of Russia. Nearby, the Old Orangery hosts a well-preserved wooden theatre in addition to large-scale murals and statues.
Other points of interest in Lazienki Park include the White House, once the home of Louis XVIII of France, and Myslewicki Palace, which housed members of the Polish royal court.
